Happy New Year 2019 !


This is my 1st Post of 2019 and what better way to start the New Year than by posting a Minimalism as Few Distinctive Colors, Photograph?


I found these colorfully painted walls near Cafe Tea Tradition, Jaipur. 
I was passing by on my Honda Activa Scooter. I stopped by for a quick couple of shots.

The Gray Arc/ Curve that you see in the foreground is actually a large cement sewer pipe, that I have used intentionally to break the Colorful Pattern Photograph (that I randomly titled "Thoughts in Color" to be honest) 

and since it is mostly out of focus it also does not disturb the frame.


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 24-105 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/14

  • Shutter Speed: 1/60 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-2000

  • Exposure bias: 0 step

  • Focal Length: 105 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Flash mode: No flash

  • Exposure program: Manual

Hope you enjoyed the Thoughts in Color Minimalist Photograph.


Thank you for your time. Have a Nice Day. !

What motivated me to click this shot "Cutting the Arrow"  was the Black Wire cutting across


To begin with, I was standing too far from the White Arrow, and because of that the Black Wire was nowhere near it.

I kept moving towards the White Arrow till the time I had the Wire cut it (visually) approximately in half. 

Note: this is a Look Up / Looking-Up Minimal Shot and it falls under the Minimalism as Less Elements Category of Minimalist Photography. 

The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 50 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/16

  • Shutter Speed: 1/1600 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-3200

I found this part of Jawahar Kala Kendra (JKK) newly painted. This is the Area at the front entrance. 

I usually enter JKK from the parking area, but today while I was on my way for the parking, I spotted this.

Thank you JKK for another Minimal Art Photograph.

As you can see from the composition, this Photograph is all about Lines and their interaction with a Small Pipe

Therefore I categorized this under Minimalism as Simple Geometry. (as lines dominate the frame).

  • Lens: Canon 24-105 mm Prime Lens

A Black and White Minimal Art Photograph of Long Shadow of Railing Vs a Part of a Bicycle Tyre. 


I spotted the Long Shadow of the Railing first and then I included a part of the Bicycle Tyre to the bottom right of the frame, leaving a lot of negative space on the left. 

This ain't Parts of the Whole Minimalism (because of just the part of a Bicycle Tyre), but rather Minimalism as Less Elements

When I don't find subjects, I try and create newer ones from the elements available on the streets. 

This picture from Johari Bazaar, Jaipur, is an example of such a frame. I wish I could travel outside Jaipur, so that I can click newer shots with newer elements and backdrops. I have been shooting Minimalism in Jaipur for 5 years now. Somehow me travelling outside to shoot hasn't happened yet.
Hopefully Soon enough.

The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 50 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/4

  • Shutter Speed: 1/1600 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-100

  • Exposure bias: 0 step

  • Focal Length: 50 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Flash mode: No flash

  • Exposure program: Manual

  • White Balance: Auto

Hope you enjoyed the Railing Shadow Vs Bicycle Tyre Minimalist Photograph.


Thank you for your time. Have a Nice Day. !

On another Sunday while I visited Jawahar Kala Kendra, I visited a Design Exhibition held by INIFD, Pearl Academy Jaipur etc.

The Exhibition was on the first floor and there were sketches of Fashion-wear, some Paintings and even Photographs on the walls. They were also enrolling students for design courses.

Surprisingly, one girl approached me and asked me whether I was looking to get enrolled for a design course. Of course, I said No, but I was happy that she considered me young enough for it, aka probably a teenager ;) I am 37 by the way, now. Haha.

Anyways, While one my way back, I saw this Triangle being formed between the Side Rails of the Staircase that I was supposed to take on my way out.

I flipped the screen to the LCD view, Selected the Monochrome settings and Focused right on the White Triangle.


I took about 6-7 shots and about 5 minutes to finish shooting, as a lot of people were coming in the frame.

5 Minutes Later, I knew I had my Minimalism as Simple Geometry Photograph :)


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 50 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/4

  • Shutter Speed: 1/200 sec.
